Albert Bartlet (bio cribbed from his Wikipedia entry):
Albert A. Bartlett is an emeritus Professor of Physics at the University of Colorado at Boulder, USA. Professor Bartlett has lectured over 1,500 times on Arithmetic, Population, and Energy. Bartlett is a modern-day Malthusian.
Professor Bartlett often explains how sustainable growth is an oxymoron. His view is based on the fact that a modest percentage growth can equate to huge escalations over short periods of time. He has famously stated that "The greatest shortcoming of the human race is our inability to understand the exponential function."
He regards overpopulation as The Greatest Challenge facing humanity, and promotes sustainable living. Bartlett opposes the cornucopian school of thought (as advocated by people such as Julian Lincoln Simon), and refers to it as The New Flat Earth Society.
J. B. Calvert (1999) has proposed that Bartlett's Law will result in the exhaustion of petrochemical resources due to the exponential growth of the world population (as per the Malthusian Growth Model).
When I record the long interview with Prof. Bartlett, I will assume that the audience has already listened to his talk,: http://globalpublicmedia.com/lectures/461
I'll flesh this entry out a bit later, but just now, it's time for me to get on home.
